“Great stay! Wish we could have stayed longer!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

We only stayed a couple of nights driving from Vegas, but it was great! Right on the beach and near the end of the boardwalk. I was not expecting it to be right on the beach after seeing how Santa Monica hotels were situated, so it was a nice surprise. Rooms were very small, but very clean and you really don't spend must time in them anyway, so it wasn't a big deal. Parking was no problem either night, but it is a tight fit sometimes. Also, there was a fridge and microwave in the room which was nice. Great experience and I would stay here again, hopefully for more than a couple nights!

Room Tip: Ocean view was nice to hear the waves, but the windows face the boardwalk, so you have to be aware t...

We stayed for a week at Venice on the Beach Hotel, Venice, CA.
This is a recently remodeled hotel on the beach and the hotel is very clean with a great location. The on-site manager Greg is a wealth of knowledge for the restaurants and activities in the area. The boardwalk is right at the front door and is perfect for walking or biking. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: hotel front has ocean views

We wanted to be near the beach for our first two nights in California, and this place couldn't have been more perfect. The room was clean and well-appointed, the staff was friendly and helpful, and the location could not have been better. Right near restaurants, coffee places, shopping, and the Venice pier and canals. Terrific! The rooms are small, so if you're looking for something huge to hang out in, maybe not for you. Also, while the hotel is very well insulated from outside noise, the interior walls are a bit thin, so hope that you don't get a noisy neighbor who wants to stay up late.

my boyfriend and I stayed here 2/25, only one night on a whim as we drove to LA from Maine. After having been in the car for days, it was such a relief to pull up to venice on the beach hotel! found a room with an ocean view (thanks trip advisor!) for as much as I would pay for a hotel by the airport. amazing! even though I made a last minute reservation, we were greeted with open arms by greg and his staff. the hotel is like a bed and breakfast bc of the limited number of rooms, but it is very much a boutique hotel. the rooms are quaint, but it's part of the charm! the room was as promised, and not only did we have a view of the ocean, the location was amazing. very close to Washington Blvd, so even though its on venice boardwalk, it's very much away from the hustle but it's still right there(does that make sense?) breakfast was beautiful! (and part of the rate) and we sat outside and watched the waves as we ate. greg was an amazing "host" and I recommend this hotel 100%. it's def. a place I will go back to time and time again. I live in LA now and would pay money to stay there for a weekend "stay cation" I promise, you will not be disappointed! thank you greg and your staff!

Perfect location to explore Venice Beach - right on the seafront near the pier, on the quieter section of the boardwalk. The ideal place to stay on a stopover as it's only a 20 minute ($25) cab journey from LA airport and if you're jet-lagged, you can go for an early morning walk along the beach. I was up to see the sunrise and spotted a few early morning surfers, fishermen, a couple of seals, pelicans and dolphins.
Greg was incredibly welcoming and helpful in suggesting nice places to go for a beer and a bite to eat.
Highly recommended.

This hotel is in a great location right on Venice Beach. Our hotel room was right off the back lane parking lot so we didn't have much of a veiw from our room but that was fine as we only used it for sleeping and showering. The bed was very comfortable. They have cute vintage surfer art hanging on the walls. My only complaints about the rooms are that the bathroom is too small and the walls were paper thin. We were next to the stairs and heard people stomping up and down all the time.

The continental breakfast was the best I've ever had! There was good quality cereal, bagels, toast, fruit, juice and coffee. The rooftop eating area was great. It was a lovely experience to sit up there in the morning sun, watching the joggers go by as you ate breakfast. There were a limited amount of chairs up there so my only suggestion for improvement is to add more chairs.

The guy at the front desk was great. I don't remember his name but he was very friendly and always happy to recomend a resturant or give directions.

I actually didn't care much for the Venice Beach area. It seemed a little passed it's prime, but if I ever return I would stay at this hotel again.

This is a very quaint, comfortable Hotel. The bed was super soft and the ocean view room was well worth the price. Nice outdoor shared patio to relax on or an upstairs deck as well. The manager Greg very nice and helpful. Next time I am in L.A. I will stay here again!!
